Most people don’t realize that even a small amount of water can cause considerable damage to their homes or property. Water can be a very damaging element. When water finds its way into properties the result is often extensive water damage, structural damage, and mold growth. Thus, knowing how to spot trouble areas to prevent water damage in your home or commercial property is critical.
Call the experts at PuroClean of San Tan if your property is affected by water damage caused by floods, broken pipes, backed-up sewer lines, leaking faucets or toilets, air conditioning units, old water heaters, or any other kind of water damage in your home or business. We are here day or night 24/7.
Most property owners have never experienced water damage in their homes or business. Statistics show that 1 in 55 homes will suffer from some sort of water damage every year. We often get calls from homeowners experiencing wet or flooded floors in their property, including wet carpets, tile, or wet wood floors. These floods are often caused by freezes, leaky pipes or appliances, old and rusty water heaters, roof leaks, and clogged air conditioning systems, or they can be caused by natural disasters like floods and monsoons.
Water damage may strike your property due to natural catastrophes such as strong wind and rain from monsoons, flash floods, and other phenomena. Strong winds and heavy rains can cause harm to your roof, causing rainwater to drain directly into your home or company. Worse, severe weather can sometimes result in flash flooding, particularly if your property is located in a flood-prone zone. Read our guide for what to do when flash floods strike.
You would be surprised to know that at times, people living in multiple story units, forget to turn the water off as they are preparing a bath and it overflows, other times washing machines fail, overflowing. These events cause flooding on the floors where these units are installed and at times they end up leaking from upstairs to the units below. These events end up flooding inside the walls, floors, and damaging drywall and ceiling as well as other home components. Head over to our blog to find out what actions to take if your washing machine overflows.
The pipes on your property carry water throughout, so a leak or puncture can lead to significant damage. A leaking kitchen sink pipe might allow enough water to flow into the cabinet below it, potentially causing damage. A leaking pipe inside the walls may make things worse. A leak like this can cause significant water damage and the formation of a mold colony because the entire wall is wetted. Worse yet, if there is a leak in your plumbing supply line or drainage pipe in the soil beneath your concrete slab, you’ll be out of luck. Learn how to detect if there is a leak leading to water damage within your walls.
Many commercial and residential structures have their Air Conditioner on the roof, in the attic, or in other areas inside. As these units work hard to cool the air they develop a lot of condensation. This condensation collects and then exits the structure through a pipe to the outside of the structure. These pipes often become clogged resulting in the water from the condensation spilling out into the home or business. While this may not cause a major flood, it can cause significant water damage to insulation, drywall, furniture, and cabinetry. If it goes unnoticed the formation of a mold colony is likely. This can be prevented by having your air conditioner serviced annually.
Although freezing events in the Valley are infrequent, we have had incidents where people call PuroClean when their pipes freeze. Frozen pipes do occur on some of our coldest nights during the winter. As the temperatures get lower, the water in pipes that are not well insulated can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, which damages the water lines, creating leaky pipes, and flooding the house. Read our tips on how to prevent pipes from freezing, and find tips about winter storm safety for homeowners.
